Am I that strange?

So when we went to see Indy (which I should blog… sometime…), we went to a cinema with allocated seating. When we got to buy our tix, we were both – shall we say – a bit excited. My love asked if we could be in the middle, and I said “Up the front?” at the same time. The dude looked at his screen and said we could have off centre, near the back. My love frowned and said, “How about up the front?” The dude looked surprised and replied “I thought you were being sarcastic!” So we got row 5. No one in front of us.

Hello?! If I go to the cinema, I want to really be at the cinema: I would prefer not to have anything in my peripheral vision except more screen! How is this such a strange thing? Because there were very few people near us, for Indy.*

Then tonight, my love and I went to IMAX, to see U23D (which will also be blogged, and was awesome). It was IMAX, so we didn’t go too crazy: we sat in the third row, which was quite close enough. There was a couple sitting behind us (who insisted on talking… grrr…), but no one else in our row and no one in front.

Are we strange? Tell me there are other people who sit up the front!

*Except for a dad and three kids under eight. I looked at the kid who sat next to me and told him, gravely, that he hadn’t been born when I started looking forward to this movie. The dad laughed; the kid ended up moving… which maybe wasn’t a bad result   ;]

  1. You are strange. Up the front = crick in the neck = bad movie experience.

  2. Nah, up the front = awesomeness!!


  3. other people = bad movie experience! It’s Indy… yeah, I can wait for the DVD.

  4. That could be true – about other people, I mean. It’s another reason for sitting up the front, and not minding apparently being weird.

    And it was *Indy*!! You have to see it at the cinema – you don’t get the full effect otherwise!
